If you have kids that love to dig and find rocks then this is the place. Yes its a little expensive but thats to be expected. Its more about the experience than the cost. We got the yellow bucket and found some really cool stones.

Brought granddaughter who was 6, not sure who had more fun her or grandparents. Its pricey, but you can pick your bucket price range. Grandaughter loved it! She loves rocks, so this was a winner! Lots of fun!
